There’s An Underground City Beneath Sacramento In Northern California That Most People Don’t Know About

One of the most prominent cities in Northern California has a mysterious past… and a whole underground level that hardly anyone talks about! Old Sacramento was built up during the time of the gold rush, but the frequent flooding of this area obliterated its first level time and time again, until finally, the city abandoned that level altogether. It’s both fascinating and creepy to tour the abandoned level… see for yourself!
